Anahita Irani @ Atwell Art Center & gallery

Event Title: Indian Tribal Expression.
Participating Artists: Anahita Irani.

Venue: Atwell Art Center & gallery, 586 Canning Highway, Alfred Cove.

Description: Warli is a 400 year old Indian tribal art form. It originates
in the Maharashtra state in western India, and is still practised today.
Traditionally, the paintings were done on the insides of their houses which
were made with a mixture of cow dung and red mud, giving it the terracotta
colour. The paintings were done using powdered rice mixed with water to form
a paste, and painted on the walls using a thin bamboo stick.

It is a two dimensional art form, with no importance placed on perspective.
Using only simple triangular forms, circles and lines, the art depicts so
much movement.
